Well have you ever transferred anything from your xbox to your comp before? I'm not sure, but if not the xbox does configure the usb so it can work with it. Dont forget that xbox files are in a format that shouldn't allow them to be read by a computer. That might be the prob.

Hi! When you configure a USB Storage Device for use by the Xbox, that partition created is not able to be read by a PC - so the behavior you're describing is normal. It is possible to set a smaller partition than the entirety of your 2GB Flash Drive. You could, for example, set aside 1GB for Xbox, and have the remainder left for using with your PC.

For more information on USB Storage Devices and Xbox 360, check out: Format a USB flash drive to use as an Xbox 360 flash drive . Specifically, option 2 under "Format a USB flash drive."
